I've tried many stuff on Rubbers, the best stuff was a cocktail of just about every solvent i could fins in my garage. The stuff turned milky white with some waterbased solvent, and it smelled awfully. Something between LRP Cleaner and sour milk.. And not even close to odorlees which is required around here
The best odorless additive looks to be Paragon Traction Action, with the new LRP Carpet (light blue bottle) close behind. Many around here uses CS Highgrip too.

Just put in on 5-10 minutes before you heat and you are ready to go. Don't need to wipe anything off. Doesn't leave a slimey feel to your tires. Don't even need to take a couple of laps to "scrub" off the excess. Very consistant from begining of run to end of run. And.....no wintergreen smell.
I checked Niftech's site but couldn't find the addictive!

Can someonem help me?

Thank you

Nick

The only problem is that some guy named Hacktor might chase your car around the track until he gets tired and passes out.
jason dont worry I got your # you pizza bandit I will steal your snickers next time.

I have used red dot, only on a clean surface it does pick up the dirt.
I just wanted to see what wierd combos everyone was trying. Mc smooth will vouch for me the best foam stuff ever was DR.D's orange tire traction compound.

What I am looking for is what has been tried on rubber.
In the cold wd 40 work great. But anyone one tried a thicker oilbased product. Is tire tweek an oil?

Ive used trinity death grip. Works good. But is pretty poisonus.

Ive used simple green (clean the whole car with that and some alcohol, works wonders). Makes the tires nice and grippy and clean. Embedded dirt will make you loose traction so be sure to get that out.

Then After-Run oil works great. I would just cover them in that and let it soak. Soon its gone and you wipe it off and your tire is like brand new.

Rubber needs oil so it can perform how its supposed to. With the heat and friction they recieve while driving this removes it over time.

So to get them back to their elasticity. You need to add oil to them. Soon they become this super rubber.

Good luck.
